Shortcode Reference

 

To get familiar with wppa shortcodes: first try the shortcode generator:

4629

Shortcode generator icon

4630

Shortcode generator dialog

Not every possible shortcode option is covered by the shortcode generator. This page documents all available shortcode attributes and options.

The basic shortcode for the insertion of a wppa+ display in a page or post is: [wppa][/wppa].
The shortcode allows attributes that specify the type of wppa+ display as well as the specification of albums, photos or special selection of photos.

The basic structure is: [wppa attr1="value1" attr2="value2" ...][/wppa] The sequence order of attributes is irrelevant.

Important note: Make sure you do not accidently create the shortcode by a copy from an example text or an email. The double quotes might be "texturized" i.e. opening and closing quotes in stead of simple double quotes. This will result in unwanted behaviour!

Table of attributes
AttrubteDescriptionRemarks
typeThe type of the displayDefault: generic, see the table of types
albumThe album spicificationSee the table of album specifications
photoThe photo specificationSee the table of photo specifications
sizeThe width (if not the default)Examples:
size="auto" to make a responsive display with 100% width. This is the default when Table I-A1 is set to auto
size="450" to get a display of 450 pixels wide. This is the default when Table I-A1 is set to 450
size="auto,450" to get a responsive display with a maximum of 450 pixels wide.
size="0.75" to get a responsive display with a width of 75% of the available width.
alignThe horizontal alignmentCan be one out of left, center, right. Example:
align="center"
Note: Omission of this argument is not the same as align="left". align="left" adds 'clear:left;float:left;margin-right:10px;' to the container style.
taglistTags to useUsed in:
type="multitag" taglist="tag1,tag2,tag3..."
and
type="tagcloud" taglist="tag1,tag2,tag3..."
colsNumber of columnsUsed in:
type="multitag" cols="3" for 3 columns
cols="6,2" for 6 columns on pc and 2 on mobile devices
subEnable subsearchUsed in:
type="search" sub="1"
Equivalent to the corresponding widget option
rootEnable rootsearchUsed in:
type="search" root="1"
Equivalent to the corresponding widget option
calendarSpecify calendar typeUsed in:
type="calendar" calendar="timestamp"
Possible options: 'exifdtm', 'timestamp', 'modified'.
allSpecifies that all days are initially openedUsed in:
type="calendar" all="1"
Use of this option is strongly discouraged!

type="calendar" reverse="1"
landingSpecifies search landing pageUsed in:
type="search" landing="1234"
adminSpecifies 'admins choice' usersUsed in:
type="choice" admin="admin,opa-jaap,pietje"
parentTo indicate a parent albumUsed in:
type="upload" parent="13"
Only album 13 and its (grand)children will be displayed in the upload album selection box, as far as the user has the rights to upload to these albums.
Used in:
type="acount" parent="13"
Prints the total number of (grand)childalbums of album number 13.
Used in:
type="pcount" parent="13"
Prints the total number of photos in all (grand)childalbums of album number 13.
Note that the parent album can only be a single album id number.
altA photo if the shortcode can not be displayedThe alt attrinute may conatin an existing photo id number. In case the shortcode can not be rendered, you will see the 'placeholder' [WPPA+ Photo display (fsh)].
In some circumstances this is not due to a configuration issue, but you can e.g. have plugin AMP installed and AMP applies to the content.
When the alt attribute is added to the shortcode, a plain photo will be displayed. If you do not want anything to be displayed (no photo and no errormessage) set the alt attribute to none: alt="none". Full shortcode example: [wppa type="slide" album="255" alt="4187"][/wppa]

Table of types

The following type specifications produce wppa+ supporting boxes rather than photo displays:
uploadUser upload boxCreates a frontend upload box like the upload widget. An album spec can be given to restrict the uploads to the supplied album(s). If the visitor has no rights to upload here, the box will not be displayed.
multitagCreates a multitag selection box like the tags filter widget. An optional taglist spec can be given to restrict the tags shown, a cols spec to specify the number of columns. Example: [wppa type="multitag" taglist="Bird,Duck,Owl" cols="3"][/wppa]
tagcloudCreates a tagcloud box like the tagcloud widget. An optional taglist spec can be given to restrict the tags shown. Example:
[wppa type="tagcloud" taglist="Bird,Duck,Owl"][/wppa]
superviewCreates a box with content like the superview widget.
searchCreates a box with content like the search widget. Optional arguments: sub="1" to enable subsearch (search from within current results) and root="1" to enable rootsearch (search form current album and its sub albums). To start the search from a certain album root use root="#123", where 123 is the album id. Additionally the shortcode attribute landing="123" can be used to specify a landing page id (123 in this example).
Miscellaneous type specifications:
urlAn image urlReturns the url of a specified photo id. Examples:
[wppa type="url" photo="4711"][/wppa]
and
[wppa type="url" photo="#potd"][/wppa]

Example use in template (php):
echo '<img src=".do_shortcode('[wppa type="url" photo="12"][/wppa]')." />';
This is equivalent to
echo '<img src=".wppa_get_hires_url(12)." />';
but you can use photo="#potd" in the shortcode version.
Example use in page content:
<img src='[wppa type="url" photo="#potd"][/wppa]' />
In real life:
Note the single quotes in the src attribute of img.
Another example:
<a href='[wppa type="url" photo="12"][/wppa]' target="_blank" >Nice photo</a>
In real life: Nice photo
